The oil light is a warning light for oil pressure, not oil amount.

It could me the the pressure sensor has gone bad, or it might be an indication that the oil pump has gone bad.

The best check you can do is tap into an oil gallery port with a pressure tester to get a real reading.
If your oil pump has gone bad, it can cause severe damage to your motor. This is something you do not want to ignore, and have taken care of ASAP.

My low oil pressure and low engine oil light are constantly coming on in my van but the oil is full?


If you have two different warning lights, it could be a wiring problem.
The low oil pressure warning could come on even if the engine is full of oil. If that is the only light coming on, it could be the sending unit or you could actually have low oil pressure.

Oil light comes on, engine oil full


Yes. But it could also be a bad oil sending unit. Do not drive the car until you figure it out. If the oil pump is bad you risk destroying your engine.

Why would my oil light be coming on and beeping even though I have a full oil reservoir?


if oil level is ok, your oil PRESSURE is dangerously low.
Either the wrong oil was used, or your oil pump is going bad.

Ill bet on wrong oil since you just had it changed,

Check oil light stays on even after a full oil change


The oil pan has a sensor in it that need to be replaced. It screws in and you may lose some oil.
